ok so this might sound janky but an old old mechanics trick is to take a teaspoon of black pepper and drop it in there.....after it gets hot it turns hard as rock and usually last for a long time

even if it works, i would rather spend the money and do it right.... I don't know, just the thought of putting something in there that is supposed to harden and block off the leak... what else will it block up?
